Hand to hand combat simulation gives bosses a chance to see it close up

Master Sgt. Gerald Sonnenberg, the wing historian at right, enjoys watching history in the making as Bosses from the Saint Louis region visited the 932nd Airlift Wing, and had a unique chance to take turns hitting the red man security forces hand to hand combat training simulator. The 932nd Airlift Wing public affairs shop produced an informative, detailed and event-packed Boss Day to show off the Illinois unit's military people to civilian employers. It was held during a recent Unit Training Assembly to show many wing activities including an explosive ordnance disposal robot, a medical trauma scenario that 932nd Medical Group members performed for civilian employers, and a look at security forces, all at Boss Day 2015. The commander, Col. Karl Goerke, welcomed the group bright and early that morning. In addition, they saw the Mission Support Group, Operations Group, Maintenance Group and 932nd MDS reservists who conducted a trauma demonstration which highlights the specialized training that Air Force Reserve medical personnel receive. The 932nd Airlift Wing was host to Saint Louis regional civilian employers this year on Scott Air Force Base, Ill. The 932nd AW is the only Air Force Reserve unit that flies the C-40C.
